After our view point to see Telaga Warna from a Birdseye view, we came down to see the true blue of the lake. I don’t think my camera was good enough to capture the colour of the lake but in different areas the tone of blue changes and its quite serene and beautiful despite the throng of tourists. I would say that it is not over commercialised yet which is great, theres no fancy eateries or tourist souvenir shops yet and that is great.
There was a makeshift “flying fox” activity there. I’ve not seen anyone do it yet and well…I wouldn’t, it doesn’t look sturdy and the wire falls too low and near to the lake almost assuring that you’ll definitely dip your butt into the lake before barely balancing yourself on that makeshift raft they call the landing platform.
Still its worth a try for the adventurer who is willing to risk their life on a flimsy rope with a great view and a hard landing on a shallow lake.
Some people stood on the long extending trunk and took amazing pictures of themselves on the lake, I would like to but I have a lame sense of balance and the thought of getting my shoes wet or my legs falling apart and landing square on my crotch on the trunk is something less to be desired, I’ll pass this time, thanks.
Theres no colour editing in this, the lake just gave off a strong turquoise blue and sky blue colour when taken behind the shadows of trees. Its just so pretty to look at. On the other hand as we walked further to the small “shoreline” of the lake, it was an intense overbearing smell of sulphur with is like smell a boiled egg, except you multiply the smell by 1000 (I’m not kidding). I literally ran out of there after a while.
These are our lovely guides Juno and Awe from Alamanda B&B, these boys are very informative and such fun to be with, its almost like no pressure hanging out with them and soon its just like a group of friends hanging out on a weekend!
Feels like I could almost see some hobbits popping out from the greenery anytime soon.
Goodbye Telaga Warna!
